The TAIGA experiment at Tunka valley, near to lake Baikal is enhancing the scintillation detector arrays with new type of scintillation detectors. This new type Taiga-Muon scintillator detector is tested with the help of particle tracking system using cosmic muons. The time difference technique has been applied to find the co-ordinates from streamer tubes which are connected in series. This type of detectors is already used in the muon system of the KEDR detector at the VEPP-4M collider, Budker INP. The amplitude distribution in the TAIGA-Muon scintillation detector is simultaneously analyzed with the co-ordinates of the incident particles. The ROOT software package and standard C++ program is used for this study. This results on the amplitude distribution will be used in data analysis of extensive air shower and for detailed Monte Carlo simulation.
